Holly Jolly Greetings Magic Friend,
Many thanks to everyone who we've crossed paths with this year. We have learned so much from you. When we reflect upon the year's accomplishments, challenges, and the people who have helped us throughout 2009, we have so much to be grateful for. You're the bright star in our holiday sky!
ON GUARD! Our new Carnival of Illusion website is up and running in full gear. Many many thanks go out to our invaluable three Musketeers: Bryce Kuhlman and Gabe Marihugh on web and software, and Jonathan VanBallenberghe on video. Belated thanks to Jeff Smith who does much of our photography. Click "Play Video" to view our fun old-fashioned 1-minute teaser on the new site. Also, for those not knowing what do with early out of town holiday guests, the "Buy Tickets" button will give you a list of our upcoming Tucson Parlour show times.
STUNNING! When you're in El Paso, check out this beautiful landmark inside the historic Camino Real Hotel. We snapped this photo the morning after our holiday performance for a large transportation corporation. Check out the breathtaking Tiffany cut glass dome, which is 25 ft. in diameter and is suspended by wires. Yikes!
SOUTHWESTERN ICON The DeGrazia Foundation has invited us to perform our Carnival of Illusion Parlour Experience for their holiday event. This year marks the 100th anniversary of artist Ted DeGrazia's birth. (One of the most prolific artists in the Southwest whose work was regularly featured in Arizona Highways Magazine.) The centennial of this legendary artist is celebrated at the adobe complex he designed and built.
LAST MINUTE GIFT IDEAS This year we're offering the "Gift of Magic" to all who wish to pass on the magical spirit to family, friends and colleagues. Our Victorian-Inspired Parlour shows have received rave reviews. Create a shared memory; perfect for the person-who-has-everything or the hard-to-buy-for employer. Be an "aristocrat" and invite your VIPs to a Parlour Experience. There are many special offerings to choose from including hotel weekend packages. Give us a call or drop us a line for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IT'S A TRADITION We've added a new star performer to our holiday dance line-up. Put on your tap shoes, grab a candy cane, turn up your volume, and enjoy our team effort. (It may take a second to autoplay so don't hit the download button.)
Here's wishing you a fabulous holiday season and many more magical wonders for 2010!
